A Social History of Irish-Jewish life

Jewish Ireland: A Social History is an engaging and thoroughly researched panorama of Irish-Jewish life from the end of the nineteenth century to the present day. Based on library and archival material, private memoirs and oral testimonies, it gives an understanding of the Jewish way of life to the wider community, underlines the contribution made to Ireland by its Jewish citizens and evokes a way of life that was peculiar to Irish-Jewry and lives on only in the memory of more senior citizens.

From the early days of Russian Jews escaping Tsarist persecution to Ireland, to the development of what were to become kosher centres of Jewish life around Dublin's Clanbrassil Street, and covering the influence of the Irish Jews throughout the Irish civil war and throughout both world wars, this work is an invaluable and insightful portrayal of a people and a way of life.
